Sorry but this brings back bad memories of the tri-centennial parade. What a dud that was. I was expecting something like the bicentennial flotilla in NY harbour. Instead there was one ship about every 15 minutes.

Tomorrow evening is the Annual dinner of the Marine Historical Society of Detroit at the Seaway Terminal in Port Huron, and we are happy that even one 3 master might be on the premises for the occasion.

Sorry to threadjack, but the train loco that you asked about at Fort Wayne is not there. No one I asked seemed to know what I was talking about when I inquired, either. I will continue to look for you until I get an answer, though!

Many thanks, PlyRes for the update on the old zoo train. I found out last week that if you google "Glancy Train Modular Club", you will see photos of the old rusting-away locomotive taken in what is described as the "Detroit Historical Storage Area" which I had assumed was located at Fort Wayne. So I will contact the folks at the DHS ( beginning with Bob Cosgrove) and I am sure I can find out where the storage area is located.
And congrats on winning jjaba's latest trivia contest. I took both of those photos, and excused myself from the contest, so I should really share in the million dollar prize that I assume jjaba will be sending you. But give my share to Ms. Ply.
